Voice part openings All
Experience or other requirements "Membership is open to people with voices in the male vocal ranges who love to sing and are able to sing parts. Being able to read music and prior singing experience is a plus, but not required. Membership will require a reasonable level of physical health and conditioning, including voice quality and pitch."
Audition procedure "Formal auditions are not required. Instead, you are asked to participate informally for 4 weeks of regular rehearsals; during which time, as you become acquainted with the Choir and the music, the Director has a chance to evaluate the vocal qualities of the person."
Day(s)/time(s) of rehearsals Thursdays, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., year round.
Place of rehearsals Peace Lutheran Church, 828 West Main St., Grass Valley
